Police: Father Drove Drunk With Kids In Car

PONTIAC (WWJ) – A Pontiac father is facing drunk driving and child endangerment charges after sideswiping an Oakland County Sheriff’s Department vehicle early Saturday morning.

UPDATE :  Webster has been released pending blood test results expected in two weeks.

The report will be sent to the prosecutor’s office when the results are returned.

The Sheriff’s Department says 43-year old Robert J. Webster hit the patrol car just before 2 a.m. Saturday on Saginaw Street near Kemp.  The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department vehicle was acting as a backup to another deputy when the accident happened.
